Mistborne Guardian (Druid/Ninja)
Under cover of night and shadow, these stalkers of nature’s foes train in the arts of magical subterfuge, stealth and assassination. Flanked by their loyal umbral pet and utilizing all the forces and forms of their beloved country, a mistborne guardian brooks no challenge to the supremacy of the wild and natural spaces. Finally, at the pinnacle of their training, the mistborne guardian may disappear completely from view and strike with deadly force. (Original Concept by Oceanshieldwolf)
